Seventeen artists will be exhibiting work in Quoting the Quotidian. Many of the works are rendered from familiar manufactured items and found readymade objects that have been repurposed and re-envisioned. Quoting the Quotidian is an exhibition where “artists embrace the paradox of seeing the everyday for its commonness, while imbuing their works with latent possibilities for transformation to further human experience…Indeed, in a physical and cultural landscape littered with things, perhaps an object’s imaginative charge is its most important quality.” This exhibition is also part of ISEA2015.
Artists exhibiting work include: Maya Beaudry, Scott Billings, Dustin Brons, Vanessa Brown, Manuel Correa, Barry Doupe, Daniel Jefferies, Ian Johnston, Daniel Kent, Scott Lawrence, Natasha McHardy, Jason Mclean, Marisa Olson, Roula Partheniou, Les Ramsay, Nicolas Sassoon and Kirsten Stoltmann.
VIA caught up with two of the artists exhibiting in the show: Marisa Olson and Les Ramsay. They gave some insight into what they’ll be presenting.
Marisa Olson‘s work combines performance, video, net art, drawing & installation to address the cultural history of technology, the politics of participation in pop culture, experiences of gender, and the aesthetics of failure. Olson lives and works in New York.
Les Ramsay creates his works by recycling the excess of everyday domestic objects and uses both constructive and deconstructive strategies. Considering Modern traditions while exploring the frontiers of contemporary painting, he uses collage methodologies to develop formal compositions. Ramsay lives and works in Vancouver.
